SOMATIC SEGREGATION: GENETIC EVIDENCES, CONSEQUENCES AND APPLICATIONS
There is plenty of evidence for genome instability in somatic tissues due to mitotic disorders. This short review focuses on the phenomena of chromosome number reduction in somatic plant cells referred to in the literature by different names as somatic reduction, somatic segregation, meiosis-like reduction, prophase grouping and assortment mitosis.
